Casino Term: Slot Machine

A gaming device, whether mechanical or electric machine or a software simulation of a physical device, that uses spinning reels to determine the outcome of the wager. Once known as a "one armed bandit" for the lever the player pulled to operate the game. Today's slot machines are electric powered machines, controlled by computers connected via a casino wide network, many without levers/arms.  Most modern slot machines no longer accept coins, eliminating the coin "slot" that gave the game it's name.

Slot machines found both at land based casinos as well as those that can be played at internet casinos are often times called "Slots" for short.

Short Definition:

A gambling machine that uses spinning reels to determine the outcome of a wager.
